Lightning Rally To Tie Late, Fall Short In Shootout 4-3

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Carey Price stopped all three shots in the shootout, David Desharnais had the lone goal in the tiebreaker, and the Montreal Canadiens rebounded after blowing a three-goal lead to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Victor Hedman scored twice and Sami Salo added a power-play goal during the final six minutes of regulation as the Lightning tied it at 3.

Tampa Bay’s Anders Lindback made a series of strong saves during a Montreal power play during overtime. He finished with 31 saves, including six in the extra session.

Price was bidding for his 17th NHL shutout and first since Feb. 11, 2012, when Hedman scored with 5:56 to play.

Brian Gionta, P.K. Subban and Travis Moen scored for the Canadiens, who were 0-2-1 over their previous three games. Price stopped 21 shots.
